Rye Network response from ESHT re parent education classes

Jess Town agreed to contact ESHT about a query raised in Rye Network about what was happening to local Parent education classes.  She has now heard from the contract manager at ESHT. The link below is to the relevant page on the ESHT website; it explains that from July 2014 the “parent education” classes have stopped as a result of a review which showed fewer people have been attending these classes. There are alternatives which are chargeable; alternatively there is information, including virtual tours which patients seem to like, available online:
